After-School Book Clubs, STEM, & Makerspace Clubs offered by Mrs. Stallbaumer
Mrs. Stallbaumer occasionally offers after-school clubs for students. After-school clubs are contingent on her schedule, as they are offered after hours. These clubs are typically grade level specific and require student registration by a parent or guardian. Please note that space is limited and on a first-come basis. The best way to find out about any after-school clubs offered by Mrs. Stallbaumer is to read the Learning Commons Newsletter each week, which is linked in the weekly Bear Business. Most of the newsletter will remain consistent for the month, but please check back weekly for any new information or club offerings. Additionally, all clubs will be promoted on morning announcements.
